Brian Lin commented on Nikki Menis's blog post Why Buzzfeed is Ridiculously Addictive
"When I first encountered  Buzzfeed, I found it not appealing. But as I saw more and more links from there, I decided to give it one more try. It was amazing... The top ten lists, the gifs, and the quizzes keep you on there forever."

Brian Lin replied to Katie Prochilo's discussion The Classics
"I don't think the books we read in English classes are bad at all. Most of them have things that we can take away from it. I mean there are some classic authors I like, like Jules Vernes. I believe the reason why students do not like these…"

Andrew Lundholm commented on Brian Lin's blog post The Snowden Files
"Snowden  did break a few laws to expose what the government was doing.  The tough question is, is it better that he let us know of the surveillance of the NSA or to be better off with the NSA just secretly taking information?  People…"

Kevin Stevens commented on Brian Lin's blog post The Snowden Files
"Wow, this sounds like a great book! Maybe I'll read this sometime. I can see why the government thinks it needs to collect as much data as it does (to catch terrorists), but it should definitely cut back on its surveillance programs. Great post!"

The Snowden Files

Edward Snowden, perhaps the most wanted man since Osama bin Laden, is not who you probably think he is. The general public thinks of him as a traitor to the United States because he leaked "valuable" information that the NSA has been collecting. In actuality, if you read The Snowden Files, you will see that he did not leak any information that could have caused national security issues. In Snowden's own words, "[he] carefully evaluated every single document I disclosed to ensure that each was…See More

Brian Lin commented on Amy C's blog post What About the Other Subjects?
"Nice blog post! I totally agree that other departments should set up their own week to show-off their things. I'm not saying that Writer's Week is boring but there are some students that prefer to have a Science Week, or a Math Week.…"

Brian Lin commented on Angie Peng's blog post Happy Daylight Savings
"I definitely feel that late starts are a whole lot better over the normal start times because who wants to wake up so early every morning? Typically we don't usually get our 8-9 hours of recommended sleep because of this. If we moved back our…"

Brian Lin replied to Katie Prochilo's discussion Are you sure you hate writing?
"My favorite type of would probably be texting. I say this because there is a constant interaction as you write. Basically, you write something and someone responds. Also texting allows you to write about anything you feel like making it truly…"

e-Books or the Old-Fashioned Paper Books

As iPads and Kindles get more prevalent in today's society, they bring up the issue of their ease of use for their main function: reading books, magazines, and such. But I am not focusing on everybody that uses them, only specifically on students because we utilize this devices a lot in English for reading books. The question is: are they really more efficient than paper books?I say no for several reasons. First, when writing a paper, I need to find quotes. Though the iBooks have a function of…See More

"My father died in one hundred and thirty two minutes." That is the first line of this book that I will never forget because it is so haunting. Though this first line may deter you because it seems sad, I swear this will be one of the best book you will ever read (most likely). This book is about a teenager named Taylor Markham, and she currently is a leader at a school and has to lead them through territory wars…
